We stumbled across the Betsy restaurant on South Beach as we wandered towards the bigger hotels. What a find.
We had a table right away on the veranda and were impressed with the staff and great service, and the excellent menu choice.
The meal started with a complementary chefs platter of pâté which was excellent. Followed by bread, unusually in the house style of giant cheese poppers (like giant Yorkshire puddings!).
Oysters starter platter was excellent. With the mains - 2 notable dishes were the New York Strip and the Lobster. Both total 10 out of 10!
Service throughout the meal was excellent and the bill less than we imagined. Overall highly recommended for a smart casual evening meal.
